#2268770 3/9 GDT : Kings 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 09 March 2012 - 11:09 PM

Just got back from the game. My Dad was a bit more impatient than I was. With such low shot on net totals, it was getting a bit tense at the Joe but what a finish. Nyquist looked great. Of course, it looked like he was maybe holding the stick a bit tight which could be nerves or anything but his energy was good to see. I definitely want to see more of him.

I'll be there tonight. I get plenty of chances to see games so I'm actually pretty excited to see some of the younger guys I haven't seen in person yet like Nyquist and Smith. Just play a solid 60 minutes and I'll be happy. 4-2 Wings.

GMR are you ready to be banned from Red Wings games for life??

Lol really? Lighten up. This kind of stuff happens in sports. It sucks when it happens in your city but there is nothing you can do about it. Hope he gets caught and move on.

Wonder how the Jackets fans will receive Nash knowing that he demanded a trade outta there.

They would be dumb to show any negativity towards him after how long he has been there and been dedicated. I think they will cheer him just like any game but with that being said they might be drowned out by Wings fans. :cool:

#2263039 Johan Franzen Depreciation

Honestly I am sick and tired of the excuses with Mule. I am sick and tired of the lack of play from this guy and his china-doll performances in the last couple of years. This guy is making nearly 4 million a year with this team and plays like he is making the league minimum. I really hope Kenny can move this guy as soon as possible. I have had enough of this joke of a player. His intentional offside yesterday caused a goal, he took his time getting onside the other night against Vancouver and what do ya know, he was flat on his back when the Sedin scored with 15 seconds left. I could go on and on with his lackluster performances, but I feel that I do not have to preach to the choir.

Yes, by far this guy has been the most disappointing player in the last couple of seasons. (not including 2009-2010.) Time for a change Mule. Step up or move on. We've got guys in GR that are rotting away because we have your lackluster ass here not wanting to play because its the regular season or whatever your excuse is now. :ranting:

Yea it's called trying to block a shot. You kinda have to lay down to do that effectively...

I am pretty sick of reading displeasure over Franzen. He obviously isn't playing up to his potential but no team is perfect and every team has under performing players. Would you rather him be hurt? Because I don't think he is going anywhere this season at least. I'm just glad he is healthy and hopefully will be for the playoffs because at the very least he commands attention from the other team on the ice and can free up space. This years current team is better with him versus without him and having someone from GR up.

Harpoons at the ready. 5-2 Wings!

"I think it was a sniper that shoot me in the leg in the corner," Datsyuk joked. "I fall. That's why I pull the puck back with my stick. I just throw it to the middle. Bert (Bertuzzi) got it. We're still looking (for the sniper). We have to watch, see what happened."

LOL Datsyuk talking about the first goal.

That was incredible. I have no words.

Except those words...

Yea let's be real. Nothing hurts in this world like '09. I want a rematch and revenge.

#2251351 Rick Nash?

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 02 February 2012 - 04:08 PM

I don't think Filppula will be traded but I don't think he has to.

Nyquist, Mursak, Smith, 2012 + 2013 1st round draft pick. Go for the cup.

#2250924 When Eaves comes back...

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 31 January 2012 - 02:39 PM

see I'd rank them:


i think mursak has tremendous upside (we just haven't seen it consistently because of injuries) and is very young.

miller plays a role and plays it well, and i don't think he'll be one of those players expecting a significant raise every few years.

eaves cannot stay healthy. seriously, look at his TSN profile.

emmerton is... um.

Give the guy a break. He got a puck shot into his face. Not much you can do about that one. Even if he has had injury problems before hand, he hasn't been that injury prone while with the Wings besides for maybe a 10 game groin injury it has been all minor.

Nick Lidstrom doesn't have any hair on his balls... why? Because hair doesn't grow on steel.

Blues just lost in a SO. Preds beat THE CORE and are now tied with them. Detroit can get get a little gap during the all star break with a win here. It would only be a 4 point lead but I'll take it. Should be a tough game but I think Bert will get #300 on a GWG.

I don't mind Howard being scrappy at all. He can stand up for himself and he isn't afraid to do so. He could complain to refs or media about it but instead he gets physical back. With the Joe chanting his name towards the end he was probably pumped up to get the win. He knows the hometown fans like physical goalies too ;)

cprice12, I saw you were saying Howard has a history of "attacking players" on your forum. Such as against Crosby when he was mauling Zetterberg at the end of that game which I'm sure you didn't see from your youtube clips. Or like here when Howard "attacked" Pietrangelo because he didn't like getting socked in the face at the end of a game when they were pushing and shoving back at Howard if not more (grabbing his mask from behind.) Yet you have complaints about Stewart instigating Stuart? :huh: Enough Excuses. We'll see you April 4th. And then maybe a month or so after that if you're lucky.
